Love this place!!!
Awesome place with convenient amenities.

Wanna Wanna Inn is a lively, small hotel perched directly on the beach at S. Padre Island. It has a Tiki type open bar attached to the hotel that open to the public and also a small restuarant that basically serves bar food. There is also live music on the weekends. There is a shared parking lot for guests and the public using the beach access. The rooms are clean and cool. Showers and all plumbing in the room was in good working order. That is no mean feat as the amount of sand we personally dragged into the room daily was epic. That all being said, if you appreciate a laid back, beachy fun atmosphere this is your spot. If you can't hang then don't bother.

Curtains didn’t cover the windows completely. There was no one in front desk 24/7 or at least a number to call for questions or to help. Refrigerator & stove had rust on the outside surfaces of them. Pillows were a too hard.

Thanks to the friendly staff and taking into consideration the pandemic we are facing they did a great job of making sure our stay was safe and comfortable .

Wish it was better
Condition of the room needs major upgrade. Broken toilet seat, rusted shower tub. All windows extremely dirty, could not hardly see out. The price for this room was extremely high for the condition of this room.
